In the wake of Roy Halladay(notes) pitching the 20th perfect game in big league history, here's a roundup of 27 thoughts, stats and excerpts, one for each batter he consecutively retired. 1. I was in the 300-level of Chicago's United Center, watching the Blackhawks and Flyers in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals, when I first heard about Halladay's achievement. And I have to admit that it peeved me a bit at first. Why couldn't Roy have went 27 up, 27 down on a night when more people were watching?
When we tweeted last night about local coverage of the Chicago Blackhawks Halloween Party, we did so begrudgingly: The notion that Adam Burish(notes) as Dennis Rodman and Patrick Kane(notes) as Scottie Pippen were racially insensitive in wearing "blackface" for their Chicago Bulls costumes is a joke. It's something that didn't even cross our minds when we first blogged about the Blackhawks' costumes on Monday because this wasn't an instance of offensive caricature or simmering bigotry.
This seems a little nuts: Heat fans have been assured of a pretty amazing home opener since the first week of July, and the NBA schedule with available tickets was released just a month later -- but as of around noonish Miami-time Friday on the day of the team's home opener, tickets to the game were still available.
Rosen should declare for the draft tonight while poking his head out from the back of a limo with a party loudly in progress, moments before speeding away into the night. Preferably while wearing an ascot.

The defense was better and Texas was very competitive vs. USC, Oklahoma, Ok. State. But UT began the year with a bad random loss, ended it with a bad random loss, and didn't beat anybody it wasn't supposed to. No way to spin 6-6 as a significant step forward.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
